Trauma with aged implants
Its best to see your surgeon or some other plastic surgeon for an evaluation to see if intact. Implant displacement can usually tell the examiner if the shell is intact or not and if questionable, you could have an ultrasound or MRI (but way more costly) to have radiographic proof. You certainly could have a pulled muscle or contusion. Only way to find out for sure is to see a plastic surgeon.
Breast implant trauma - pushed or fall
Thank you for sharing. You probably should start by seeing your PS who can examine you. You could need imaging like an MRI to evaluate your implants further. Best wishes!
Thank you for your question. It is hard to assess pain over the internet, but it sound like the pec muscle may be whats causing your pain. I recommend you see a plastic surgeon for a physical examination of the area and assessment of the implant which may include ultrasound or MRI.Best Wishes!
Trauma to breast implant
After a breast trauma, it is best to see a plastic surgeon to evaluate your breasts.
You may require an MRI to see if there is implant leakage.
At 15 years, many implants need a revision, so if there are issues about your breasts, that would be a good time to address that concern as well.
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to say without an examination. The fact that you have not suffered any bruising or swelling is a good sign. You may want to consider an MRI to see if there is any damage to your implants. I would also suggest you see a board certified plastic surgeon for an exam to make sure everything is okay.
Best of luck,

Best to get seen by a board certified plastic surgeon
Hello and thank you for your question. Since your main complaint is soreness and you do not see any noticeable shape changes, you probably have a muscle bruise or possibly tore some of capsule/scar tissue -- this should hopefully get better over time. Regardless, given the severity of your impact, it would be a good idea to make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in aesthetic breast surgery to make sure that you and your implants are ok.

It would be best to be examined by a plastic surgeon to make sure your implants are doing well. You may have torn some scar tissue which will heal.
Pain after breast trauma
Thanks for your question. It is difficult to comment accurately without an examination. The fact that you have not suffered and bruising or swelling is a good sign. At 15 years however, your implants are likely more prone to rupture with significant trauma. It is probably a good idea to be seen by your plastic surgeon if you are having continuing pain. An MRI would be able to determine if you have done any damage to your implant. Best Regards.
